Re: Notes from the version control BOF at the summit
While it's not my "drug" of choice (Go monotone!), the checkin comments
are simply a property in subversion, and all properties are versioned,
so you can do this.
With such automatic generation, it would be nice for the checkin
themselves to be versioned objects, so that a spelling or other
could be checked in to a previous checkin comment (and automatically
update the ChangeLogs thereby, without changing the history of
on old tags corresponding to the previously tagged version of the
comment) - but with this being a versioned action with the history
properly recorded, it would be safer than cvs admin to have available
all with write access. But I don't know if any version control
have versioning of checkin comments.
